  • Health effects
  • Bioterrorism
  • Bioaerosol sampling

  • Microbial remediation
  • Moisture in buildings
Each participant will receive ACGIH®'s Bioaerosols: Assessment and Control, and other course handouts.

The initial Mold, Spores and Remediation Workshop, scheduled for early May, sold out weeks prior to the workshop. To meet demand for this workshop, ACGIH® has scheduled additional workshop dates in August and October.

Post-workshop surveys have indicated that attendees were impressed with the workshop. Dr. Gary Rodabaugh, who attended the May workshop, exclaimed this is "the most valuable seminar I have attended in the last decade!" Kristin Száva, ACGIH® Director of Education, encourages early enrollment to ensure a seat at the Mold, Spores and Remediation Workshop because "The seats are going fast!"

The American Board of Industrial Hygiene has approved the workshop for 4.0 Industrial Hygiene Certification Maintenance Points.
